    Delco battery date

    I will be shopping for a new battery for my 2001 STS. The last one (a Delco) lasted 1 year - which pisses me off. In case I stick with Delco (see my other thread), is there a way to determine the manufacture date?

    I found some OLD threads on this topic but I don't think they apply anymore.

    Thanks

    Re: Delco battery date

    The guy at the Delco shop explained the current numbering to me...so I'm posting for the interest of other members:

    My battery is marked P121R which means:
    P = Made in Pennsylvania
    12 = Made in Dec (12th month)
    1 = Made in 2011 (2010 + this digit)
    R = no ideas...

    Made in Pennsylvania - I wonder if that's an East Penn battery - Deka #779MF. They make batteries for a LOT of contracts.
